Mission Statement: We are dedicated to the betterment of the lives of companion animals in Saginaw County, Michigan. 


We believe that No Birth is the first step to No Kill.
Our organization works diligently to reduce the population of homeless and unwanted animals through our low or no cost spay and neuter services.
We provide no or low cost spay and neuter of owned pets for low-income residents in our county. There are no veterinarians in Saginaw County that will adjust their spay/neuter charges based on one's income. Additionally, there are no low cost spay and neuter clinics. Many people cannot afford to fix their pets at any cost. There are 18,600 households in Saginaw County that live below the poverty level that own at least one pet- we are their safety net. Without the Humane Society of Saginaw County stepping up to fill this void thousand more puppies and kittens will be born into suffering, homelessness and neglect.

We provide Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) of Community Cats. TNR is the most effective and humane means to address the cat overpopulation problem. We live trap, transport to a veterinary clinic where the cats are fixed, vaccinated and treated for any medical issues. The cats are then returned to their outside home, which is typically a caretaker's yard. TNR stops the breeding cycle of cats and therefore improves their lives while preventing reproduction. Kittens and cats who are friendly or can be socialized are entered into our adoption program never to be returned outdoors.

We rescue the most seriously neglected, suffering, homeless and abandoned animals from the outdoors that are often left behind when people move out. We are always true to our name.... A Humane Society. The animals we rescue are emotionally and physically rehabilitated in foster homes. They are medically treated for all injuries and illness. All rescues are HW/FIV/FeLV tested, spayed/neutered, vaccinated and 100% healthy when placed up for adoption. We request $50 for a cat or kitten and $125 for a puppy or dog. The animals we rescue are so weak and neglected that our average cost of rescue is $350 per cat and $750 per dog from intake until adoption.

​We offer free pet food and supplies to households experiencing financial difficulties. We understand and respect the unique and important bond between humans and their animals. Especially people that live alone,  their pet is of vital importance to giving them a reason to get out of bed every day.

What we do...

"Such short little lives our pets have to spend with us, and they spend most of it waiting for us to come home each day." -John Grogan

Who we are...

Our organization is a 501c3 nonprofit animal protection and welfare organization that was formed in 1909 to prevent cruelty, abuse, neglect and exploitation of animals and to assure that their interests and well-being are fully, effectively, and humanely guaranteed by an aware and caring society.

 We are a tribe of  unpaid volunteers from diverse backgrounds that have been brought together solely for our love of animals and our community.


We believe that every life is precious, valuable and worth saving. We are  a no kill,  foster home-based rescue.


We rescue the most severely neglected, abused and abandoned animals to be true to our name.....a humane society. 

We believe in the interconnectedness of all life. We strive to balance the interests of humans, animals and the environment in which we live. We recognize that the only way to have sustainable change is through education. 


Our goal is that our humane education fosters a society where one's actions reflect compassion, respect, fairness and responsibility towards oneself, other people, animals and the environment.



We'd love to hear from you
